Add To Plan

Begin with a visit to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, designed and built after the war as a memorial to the people who died in the atomic bomb attack. See the impressive Atomic Bomb Dome, the only structure left standing in the area where the first atomic bomb exploded on August 6, 1945. Stroll past the Flame of Peace, lit in 1964 as 10,000 observers offered their silent prayers for peace, as well as many of the other monuments, statues, and fountains located on the Memorial Park grounds. Following lunch at a local restaurant, leave the city and take a ferry to Miyajima Island, regarded as one of the three most beautiful places in Japan. Revered and worshipped since ancient times, Miyajima exhibits a gentle atmosphere and breathtaking beauty. See the magnificent red O-torii Gate, a sacred gateway standing in the sea and guarding the Itukushima Shrine, dedicated to three goddesses and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built over the water, both the shrine and its sentinel torii seem to float on the sea at high tide. Enjoy time to experience the shrine's main hall and several subsidiary shrines, all connected by bright red passageways. The five-storey pagoda can also be seen from the Itsukushima Shrine, before returning to Hiroshima and the ship.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 4 hours of walking with a limited number of steps to negotiate.
